. this is why i got new information that last night senate majority leader harry reid met in a private dinner and he was saying he believes it's nearly impossible to get the fiscal cliff deal done before christmas. what they are focused on is a so-called plan "b" where the house in the next few days may pass extension of the middle class tax cuts. the old bush tax cuts. then let the tax rates for the rich go up and fight it out in january and february over spending cuts. we'll see whether or not conservative goes along with that, if speaker boehner was party to that. the second big story is susan rice. in the last couple of hours calling the president and saying she is pulling her name out of consideration for secretary of state, all because of the controversy over benghazi, her reaction to the terror attack, whether or not she misled the public. bottom line this puts john kerry, democratic sources say, as the likely contender to be secretary of state i'm seeing the suvs pull up with speaker boehner right now. both the stories breaking right as we speak. you will see speaker boehner in
